expectations. is this just that? >> you heard that from mitt romney. it's how you play the game. right. let's be honest. you heard the same thing from president obama sunday night at his rally in colorado. i think it also matters who wins or loses. both candidates in their final debate prep. mitt romney had the rally in colorado last night. he's hunkering down with the senator playing obama. you won't see much of mitt romney until wednesday night. same thing for the president. he's in nevada. he'll fly to denver on wednesday. he's got senator john kerry playing mitt romney in the debate preps. the president did have a chance to talk to a few people. he delivered some pizzas to the local obama for reelection campaign office out there. very nice of them. delivering pizza to the workers. he also talked about not getting out much. take a listen. >> basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> wow, wow. this is john. he's doing his homework. >> also you have some new polls for us. where are we seeing the candidates now? >> nationally, this
and mitt romney are both right the way they answered the question. the reality is we don't have a specific incentive to take jobs out of the u.s. but what happens is if you can move your taxable income to another jurisdiction that has a low tax rate, like china, you can pay less taxes in total as long as you don't repatriate the money back to the u.s. the president is right that you get a benefit. mitt romney is right in the sense there is nothing the tax code specifically that gives them a deduction for taking things out of the country. >> so is anything going on right now, either in the free market, or in government incentives to start turning the outsourcing trend into an in sourcing trend, reversing that hemorrhage of jobs going overseas and start bringing them back. what is the true story going on right now? >> well, the most important thing is that companies recognize that the economic shifted. it was in 2001 that companies started to outsource to china because wages were only 58 cents an hour. they have grown a lot and the is us h u.s. has gotten more competitive. what the president
for governor romney n my mind, than senator mccain. no more theories. now we've resume. >> steve: that's right. and in fact, the romney camp has kinds of changed their strategy over the last couple of days publicly and now they're going to make it a choice. so many people know that the economics of our situation right now are horrible and if you look at history, there is no reason this president would be reelected given the past, if it's prologged, given the fact that unemployment is above 8% and gas prices close not closinn on 4 bucks. mr. romney presenting a choice, four more years of this, or the american people will get to determine what kind of america they want to live in. a mitt romney america or a barak obama america. >> gretchen: so no doubt that the two teams who are preparing both of these candidates are saying a lot of time figuring out, what are the negatives about the other guy or how do you get under the skin of the other guy to make it to your advantage with the american people? so last night charles krauthammer on "special report" had his theory about how mitt romney might be
look at florida right now where the candidates, where mitt romney is campaigning north of orlando. look at this, florida, 49% right now to 47%, that's big bump from where president obama was leading mitt romney in the all important swing state. >> yeah, governor romney and his wife were down in florida yesterday campaigning hard and getting a pretty good reception. let's look at ann romney with some of the voters yesterday. >> every year, the median income in america-- >> and you are a tremendous asset to your husband. >> i appreciate that. you know, i-- we're doing everything we can, my boys, myself just out there working as hard as we can. >> well, i really believe that your husband is going to be-- i think they will have as much as ronald reagan did, he's going to do bet. >> i felt that for a long time. >> well, the wives of course in in race have high approval rating and favor ann romney and favor michelle obama, the wives are a huge asset. >> and president obama was off the campaign trail yesterday and finally celebrating his wedding anniversary, as you know fell on the night of th
have been looking into and reporting on some of romney's debate preps. you're right, carol. you mentioned that romney was with gop senator rob portman. i got to tell you, it is surprising that romney wants to hang out with portman still since he has been playing president obama. by all accounts in the mock debates, portman has been very, very tough on romney, to prepare him for the real thing. portman is the go-to guy for republicans for debate prep. he's worked with republican candidates since 2000 and i spoke with senator portman in an exclusive interview about what he does to prepare to prepare romney. >> how they're likely to express themselves, what the body language is going to be like, try to imitate the person, but you try to give a fair presentation, you know to whoever you're working with as to what they're likely to do. >> now, portman and romney's other members of his inner cile have been doing mock debates with him on and off for about a month. he had his first round of debate boot camp at mock debates in vermont during the democratic convention and he's had it seve
obama's team is conceding that mitt romney gained ground last night. >> that's right, george. obama campaign officials conceding that romney seems more polished. they say they expect he will get a bump in the polls. some obama allies telling me that the president last night seemed tired and bored. >> president obama and governor romney. >> reporter: it was a sweet start for the president, for what would end up something of a bitter pill. >> i just want to wish, sweetie, you, happy anniversary. and let you know, a year from now, we won't be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. >> i'm sure this was the most romantic place you could imagine. here with me. congratulations. >> reporter: and with that, former governor mitt romney began an aggressive prosecution of the last four years. invoking vice president biden's own word for what happened to the middle class. >> under the president's policies, middle-income americans are being buried. they're being crushed. >> reporter: and attacking the president's health care bill. >> i don't know how he could spend his energy and passion f
about everyone, from right to left, says that romney won the debate. i gave you a full "a" and i give the president a "c" minus. there was a giant difference between their performance. everyone who was fair was impressed with how romney handled that from going to end. obama was stunned by how well romney was performing. he seemed almost to take a step back and tune out. >>neil: do you think he came in to it is on the clock, the president, to your point he didn't expect this, and he saw little risk in taking on mitt romney and even if romney did well it would not move the needle were and maybe that is what the folks are hoping today. will that be the case? >> they may be hoping that but as word gets out and as the coverage continues of the debate, more people would didn't watch the debate will hear about romney's performance. if they are not if romney or they are undecided they will be intrigued that he took on the president and did as well as they have now heard that he did or will hear they did. the criticism being made and you heard a couple of the obama spokesman making it, that ro
in 2008 and i am doing it again in 2012 because i believe this man, met romney, is right person with the right experience at the right time to get america back is right track. america needs met romney. hip-hop i want you to go out and fight for these principles we believe i want you to stand up to make that 21st century another american century. i want you to share that message with your friends and neighbors and family members and the people you work with and the people you go to church with and with strangers on the street. it is time for all good men and all good women to come to the aid of their country. we have 33 days to get america back on the right track. so, augusta county, tonight, i want to ask you can, the only question that matters. 33 days away from is election day and i want you to shout at some of the people in stanton and harrison bergeron and waynesboro and stewart's strap here you -- the question is this. are you all ready to what? [applause] car you all ready to lead? are you all ready to win? heckling let's go get this thing done. thank you, everybody. god b
channel. coincidence, right? >> gretchen: both democrats and republicans said mitt romney won the debate. >> steve: most accurate polls are expected next week. instant polls. one pound found 67 percent of the voters thought mitt romney won and 25 percent thought president obama. was it a much-needed gamer. allor - author of the here comes the black helicopters . the loss of freedom. dick, how big of a bounce will mr. romney get? >> i would think four or five points. according to the current polls, that would take him from two or three behind to two or three ahead. in reality it will take him five nationally and put him in the lead significantly in florida and virge virge - virginia and a smaller lead in ohio. i did a study with my friend johnn, a fellow pollster and he looked at exit polls when voters came out of the voting booth. they were asked what is yourr party reference? democrats had a one point edge . went to 13 surveys done by the media in september, and he found in those, there was a combined 8 point democratic edge. those polls are 7 points wrong . so when they show in ohio th
recent "real clear politics" average shows president obama leading with 47% of the vote, governor romney with 44. virginia has 13 electoral votes up for grabs. that's where john roberts is right now, live in fisher'sville, virginia. what is the event going on there today, john. >> country music star trace atkins will be joining governor romney and his running nature at 6:45 on stage. president obama won this state by six in 2008. governor romney trailing in the polls currently hoping to use his debate performance to narrow the gap. it was the first time the two candidates were on stage face-to-face, a chance for governor romney to one-on-one answer allegations that the obama campaign has been firing his way. one of them over this idea that governor romney is trying to implement a $5 trillion tax cut for the rich. he repeatedly answered that question for president until it finally came down to this. >> look i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that is not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. but that is not the case, all righ
.z., right? >> no, absolutely not. and the thing is, is that mitt romney really seems to fungd well when he's coming from behind. so if there's anything that would give him any hope it's that when he seems to be coming from someone else has momentum, he can take that momentum, he seems to perform much better than has a front-runner. if he has any hope going in knowing expectations are extremely low for him, if he's able to take that and be aggressive and attack president obama, because let's face it the president is still extremely fuller inable. the only reason why romney isn't winning is because romney's been an absolute idiot the past two to three weeks. so if he can correct that by being aggressive, perhaps he can swing the momentum back to his favor. >> we like to use the word missteps. anna, let me give you the final word. president obama is vulnerable. he's been called a wonderful orator, that he mesmerizes audiences when he speaks, but he is vulnerable. where does romney have to strike him? >> look, i think romney needs to do what he did in the last two debates of the primary in flo
're thinking about right now is what's going to be the tone of mitt romney and president obama? what they want to know is what are you going to do? how are you going to make my life better over the next four years? we spent more time focused, talking about what -- when i say we i mean a broad media. superficial stuff, what color tie they have on, how are they standing, were they sighing as opposed to what had did they say? that's what matters to somebody sitting out there. >> this comes to someone criticizing the color of my tie before. >> dude, think about it. you need some color. >> governor strickland, i'm surprised how optimistic he s he sounds like the race is over and that obama has this sewn up. >> sour surrogate. >> kudos to him for saying what he believes. usually they play expectations down, talk about what a great debater obama is and how terrible romney strickland was sounding like it's over. >> i'm so tired of playing down expectations. >> me, too. romney is promising to honor temporary work permits for younger illegal immigrants who were allowed to remain in the u.s. after that e
allies? we can't afford four me years. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> all right. d.j. m.o.s. rolling the tunes inside our studio. coming to times square, to the question, when kids get their hands on alcohol, latest survey shows that the source is often an adult family member. even though under aged drinking is against the law. that leads to a dilemma. what would you do if you saw an adult buying alcohol for a teenager? the legal drinking age is 21 in this country. john quinones asks that question in an episode of "what would you do?" >> as fathers and mothers, we try to be the cool mom or dad because we want our kids and their friends to like us. but how much is too much? what if you see that cool dad in a liquor store, stocking up for the kids' house party? we wanted to find out what people will do if they see one of these dads in action, buying alcohol for his underaged child. >> you're going to fit right in. we need vodka. >> we don't need vodka, dad. i don't want to go overboard. >> grab a little soda, too. >> reporter: this woman enters the store and immediately ta
a little here. >> go right ahead. [laughter] >> a day or two before governor romney made his decision about his running mate, i was talking to another pollster. runs the democracy corps. they have been trying to use the ryan plan to beat republican members of congress over the head. like you said, nobody knew who paul ryan was. as we were getting off the phone, i said, i will give you this. i do not think governor romney is going to pick paul ryan. but if he does, we will have another conversation. it strikes me that democrats have not effectively made medicare and the rhine plan -- the ryan plan, i have seen the polling and how it moves people. i have not seen them in flicked a lot of bodily damage on republicans on the ryan plan, on medicare, so far. am i missing something? has it had a meaningful effect or not? >> the quick answer would be, we will find out in 33 days. >> apparently, we are going to find out in 33 days. [laughter] the first observation i make is that there is this presumption in the press, boy, paul ryan, what a risky mistake he was. test polls show that paul ryan genera
. >> that's what i like about you, faris. all right. >>> but first, the high-stakes drama tonight in denver. >> president obama and mitt romney facing off in the first of three debates. abc's karen travers is in denver with a preview. >> reporter: with president obama and mitt romney doing final debate preps, their running mates hit the campaign trail. vice president biden was speaking about romney's economic plans when he said this. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> reporter: republicans call it a stunning admission that the middle class has been hurt by the obama administration's policies. congressman paul ryan pounced. >> of course, the middle class has been buried. they're being buried by regulations. they're being buried by taxes. is they're being buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administrations economic failures. >> reporter: biden later tried to dig himself out. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and the ryan supported. >> reporter: except for debate prep, it was a politics-
of the ball to the delivery of the plate. mitt romney's got to find precisely the right arm slot. aggression with the right amount of respect for a popular president. he's got to figure out a way to flush out his agenda without getting to the unpopular parts he's been avoiding talking about like what are the tax breaks he's going to take to get the rates down. he's got to be on offense but not too much. it's hard. everything went right for george bush in 2000. gore was bad, he had orange make-up. he got in bush's face, that didn't go very well. bush overperformed, no foreign policy experience, he did very well. and the bush team outspun the gore people because they pushed their story line. and you went from, you know, minus five before the debate to plus a couple afterward and went on to win that disputed victory. but yes, romney can do it, he was a smart guy, good in most of the debates for the republicans. on the other hand, obama's pretty smart too and there's not much expectation to think he's going to screw up. >> what about, john, playing to that dull incompetent thing? he said in his
. all right. >> reporter: governor romney studying president obama's past debates, which offers romney an opportunity to exceed expectations. republican chris christie predicting just that. >> shaking your head saying it is a brand new race. >> reporter: and running mate paul ryan hanging success on the debates. >> the debate phase in this campaign. we will make this case in our debates. >> reporter: that debate will be held here in denver. in the meantime, mitt romney held a rally here behind me. most of his t-unken. preparing for the most important night of his polil cpdaac ner. >>> and president obama is spending his last full day of debate prep at a resort outside st to deliver pza at abc political analyst matt dowd says mr. obama's advisers are focused on helping the president trim his often lengthy answers. to o bes often lengthy answers. answer questions, short, concisely, and to the point, and so it's much more like his mannerisms and his style and the way he comes across as 'posed to information in this. >> so style, not substance, i guess? i don't know. >> sounds like it. >>
do they blame the rich people? too.have moneyo, right now i'm supporting mitt romney. host: let's get a response. guest: i am sorry that you lost your job. what is says is our economy is not on track. president obama knows that and his message is, "give me four more years." the message from mitt romney is, "get out of here. you have had enough time." that will be a crucial issue. people are looking for those messages. guest: it tends to get lost. not blaming that on the financial mess. of course it will affect him and his political outlook and his vote if he has felt the sting of this recession and getting laid off. a lot of people have been out of work for a long time. some of the jobs may not be coming back. anybody from the romney camp may be looking for this caller. guest: lois romano was talking about the people that en.t jobs mostly were white ma republicans have traditionally gone towards republicans anyway. he has the ability to capture your vote. host: lauren ashburn is the editor in chief of "daily download." howard kurtz is an adviser to the "daily download." guest: brand c
, where do you think the presidential race is right now? >> i think mitt romney is looking very good. that's why the obama administration didn't want to run against mitt romney. he was clearly the most threatening of the republican candidates. i think he's the strongest candidate against obama. it's hard to take out an incumbent. republicans have only done it one time before in the last 100 years. when reagan beat carter. i guess isn't the last time it's happened when clinton took out bush, right? so it's curious, for example that there were 70 million viewers of that debate the other night, the highest it's been since 1992, the last time an incumbent was taken out. i think that's because people are uncomfortable with obama but if they're not political nuts, like we are, they haven't been paying attention, haven't been watching all the debates and they just want to see who the challenger is and whether they're comfortable with him. and i think after wednesday night, everyone's pretty comfortable with mitt romney. >> you were early, looking back, i was reading back on your twitter feed last
at that camera and make that appeal. >> right. >> so the next debate will be in a town hall setting. do you think we'll see different sort of body language. >> interested to see if romney can keep up his energy like he did so well here and very interested to see if obama comes up to the bar and he does so well when there's an audience. i want to see some of that charisma and warmth. >> all right. always very interesting. thank you so much, patty. appreciate you coming in. >> my pleasure. >> so that was just fun. >>> but a serious look at the colorado debate. what are all the comedians, of course, saying about it? this best late night lafrs of the week coming up. but things are starting to turn around the week coming up. gions is her. with the experience and service to keep things rolling. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together.

. the president is not going as -- is going as far as saying he's all right in these kinds of forums. clearly, what we know, is that these debates are important n. a race where the polls are putting the president ahead and not out of reach of mitt romney, it's the challenge who may have more to gain and lose. the president took a break from two days of debate rehearsals to visit one of his own campaign offices in las vegas. he brought pizza to the volunteers and made some phone calls to a couple of voters in the area and many were surprised to have the president of the united states on the other end of the phone. mitt romney picked up a big endorsement in the denver sports world, an icon of the denver broncos, the former quarterback john elway appeared with romney offering his support. when we spoke to two top officials from both campaigns, they said what is clear is that they're both trying to do what they can to reach out to voters who still have not made up their mind. >> it's really honing in on those policy specifics on the issues they care about and he in -- hope in the end that is what
today is that mitt romney will actually do his debate walk through tomorrow over at the university of denver, so he'll be working on this all, you know, basically right up until the last moment. he had his top surrogates on the campaign trail and romney has an event later on today in littleton, colorado. paul ryan has been pretty busy, almost nonstop, out on the campaign trail the last couple of days. and so, you know, i think he'll let his surrogates do the talking for him until the debate gets started. one other thing we heard from kevin madden yesterday on the campaign plane heading into denver yesterday, brooke, you heard over the weekend, chris christie saying that this race is going to be turned upside down that romney will have such a strong performance that it is going to be sort of a game changer. i asked kevin madden about that yesterday, and he said he doesn't think that the campaign doesn't think that one event, one moment during these debates is going to decide and determine everything. they just don't see it that way. they like christie's enthusiasm, they say they're
. >> yes. >>> we get right to the race for the white house. "your voice, your vote." just 32 days to go. and this morning, mitt romney, riding high from his debate win wednesday. president obama fighting back, promising to do better at the next debate. the questions right now, is this really a new race? how much of a difference will this morning's jobs report make? david muir is with mitt romney in harrisonburg, virginia. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning to you. both campaigns awaiting the new jobs report this morning. the president hoping for good numbers as he tries to turn the page on that debate performance this week. as mitt romney in virginia looks to build on his momentum. overnight here, the key battleground of virginia, mitt romney on a different stage. but it was that debate stage 24 hours earlier, still on his mind. >> last night, i thought was a great opportunity for the american people to see two very different visions for the country. >> reporter: deafening cheers and a swelling crowd of a debate performance that's rallied republicans. paul ryan, taking away
they blame the rich people? they have money, too. right now i'm supporting mitt romney. host: let's get a response. guest: i am sorry that you lost your job. what is says is our economy is not on track. president obama knows that and his message is, "give me four more years." the message from mitt romney is, "get out of here. you have had enough time." that will be a crucial issue. people are looking for those messages. guest: it tends to get lost. not blaming that on the financial mess. of course it will affect him and his political outlook and his vote if he has felt the sting of this recession and getting laid off. a lot of people have been out of work for a long time. some of the jobs may not be coming back. anybody from the romney camp may be looking for this caller. guest: lois romano was talking about the people that lost jobs mostly were white men. i think those are the votes that are in jeopardy. republicans have traditionally gone towards republicans anyway. he has the ability to capture your vote. host: lauren ashburn is the editor in chief of "daily download." howard kurtz i
's right, george. the speech was covered five years ago. though, not part of the remarks when then-senator obama ad-libbed. conserves are calling it explosive. the obama campaign is calling it a desperate attempt by romney's allies to change the subject. speaking to the largely african-american hampton university ministers conference in june 2007, then-senator obama went off his prepared remarks. using a different speaking style than usual, obama charged new orleans, post-hurricane katrina, was supposed to get disaster from the stafford fund. a requirement waived for other disaster victims. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act. said this is too serious a problem. we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. >> reporter: same with hurricane andrew in florida, he said. but -- >> what's happening down in new orleans? there's your dollars? where's your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow, the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> reporter: beyond the accuracy
rights than in a moslem country. i will vote for mitt romney. i'm a very libertarian voters. we have been monopolized. look at the restaurant on the highway, all owned by coca-cola or pepsi-cola. the small businessman has no chance. look at danny thomas, a jewish merchant, 11 guys -- a lebanese merchants. if you are working on your own, you pay higher for a business license. guest: are not sure which to address. on the criticism of the two parties, i read a quote recently or someone said there is only one party and that is the wall street party. maybe that is the problem. i have not seen anybody prosecuted on wall street since the crash of 2008. i personally attribute that to the fact that neither party wants to offend wall street. there is so much money involved. it has happened before. it happened at the end of the 19th century. 1% of the population had half the well. 10% of the population at 90% of the wealth. maybe we are at the same point and at that point, it gave birth to the progressive movement. they were liberals in the early 20th century and maybe we're on the verge of somethin
the president. he's the devil they know. romney is the devil they don't. they haven't made up their mind about him one way or the other right now. >> colorado has nine electoral votes up for grabs, making it a crucial state for both candidates. there will be two more debates this month of the the second one takes place on october 16th. >>> tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> conservatives are using this 2007 video of then presidential candidate barack obama against him before tonight's debate. they say the video shows a racially charged speech by obama, who told a group of black clergy that the bush administration was incompetent in its reaction to hurricane katrina. >>> tony, what should we expect tonight? for insight we turn to bret baier live in colorado this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. >> curious, what might these two gentlemen be doing now? do you think they have gotten any sleep today? >> reporter: well, i think the campaigns are hoping they got some sleep, because i think this moment is a big moment for bot
that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. >> reporter: mitt romney has campaign events this week in florida, but around those events he'll be joined by senator rob portman, the one that plays president obama in the debate camp practice sessions. mitt romney is getting ready for the next session, next debate, hoping his mum carries over next week. >> john harwood is cnbc's chief washington correspondent. thanks for being here. i don't know if it's possible to strip politics away from these new unemployment numbers, but if you can, explain, does the president get credit for these numbers coming down, and how real are they? >> well, the president gets credit or blame for whatever the economic conditions are on his watch. these are numbers that are better than they've been, but they're still not good numbers. 7.8% is a high unemployment rate. we've got an economy that's not growing very fast. but it's certainly good news for the president to be able to say that 7.8%, the rate when i took office, we're back down there again. but i think people make
and question-and-answer sessions, now and then, you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that was just completely wrong. >> reporter: that was one of the first times we heard romney, in fact, the first time we heard him say he was completely wrong on those comments about the 47%. the obama team says they'll look at their strategy before the next debate. >>> james carville and mary matalin will join us on "this week." elizabeth? >>> now we're going to turn to an explosive e-mail that reveals that extra security requested by american diplomats in libya were denied. the extra security for help in flying personnel and equipment around that country was rejected. abc news has obtained the information exclusively and abc's jake tapper has more on this. with the hearings coming up next week, this could be explosive. >> reporter: it could be a big deal. absolutely right, elizabeth. after the attack in benghazi, one of the big questions is, did the obama administration recognize the deteriorating security situation in libya? and did they do everythin
the president and mr. romney have scheduled rehearsal times. the hall itself has been closed to cameras all day, no media is permitted in the rehearsals. right now, this is the spin room, where hundreds of the press are setting up their own studios. we also learn from the white house that the president would get the first question tonight, two minutes to respond, and in terms of who is invited to night, students from the university of denver, a member of guests invited by the campaign will be invited and independent. -- in attendance. once again, it all starts with our preview program at 7:00, the debate beginning at 9:00, focusing on domestic policy. earlier this week, journalists and political communications scholars discuss the upcoming presidential debates and ask the citizens to judge candidates on their grasp of issues and the qualities they want in a leader. this was held by the national communications association, took place here at the newseum in washington. this is about one hour and a half. >> it is my distinct pleasure to welcome you here today in our knight studio at the newseum fo
